Subject: The tale most excellent, the readers not so.
A childhood story that I have not visited for many years but is still very enjoyable.

I am sorry to say that this otherwise enjoyable item is let down by the book being read by a variety of readers. They are all very good in their way, but the pronouncement of certain words grates and the quality and volume varies considerably.

If you can endure varied accents, please give it a go.

Subject: Classic children book
There are various readers for this tale. The quality varies from from poor to very good.
